A record $79.9M of philanthropic donations in FY23, more than $3M higher than the previous record in FY22, shows that in the face of high inflation, a pressing cost of living crisis, and natural disasters across many communities, Australians still recognise the importance of giving to sport.
As the first year passes in the “Green and Gold Decade” leading to Brisbane 2032, the urgency to increase investment into sport grows greater. The funding needs cannot be covered by Governments and corporate sponsorships alone. Philanthropy must continue to play a role to ensure the sports sector is strong, whilst realising the economic and social dividends of this unique period for Australian sport.
